After a series of harrowing and life-changing cases in St Kilda—Head Shot & Blood Sunset—DS Rubens McCauley is burnt out and on the edge. Addicted to prescription medication, running away from too many years on the front line, he finds himself wandering the shores of Jutt Rock—a small town on Victoria’s south-western coastline—in search for the quiet life. And, for a while, he finds it. Every day, as the sun sets over the ocean, the brilliant wash of colour reflects on the shoreline—a Pink Tide. A picture-perfect respite; no crime, no stress.

John Dorn is a private investigator. Just like his father used to be. It says ‘private inquiry agent’ in John’s yellow pages ad because that’s what his old man called himself, back before his business folded, his wife left him and he drank himself to death.

Cyanide and Poppies is the second book in an historical crime series featuring ex-Great War nurse Eleanor Jones.

The novel is set in Melbourne in 1923, at the time of the police strike and the spring racing carnival.

When Eleanor and Nicholas come across a murdered journalist at the offices of the Argus newspaper they find that rather too many people had good reason to want the man dead.  To get to the truth, Eleanor has to search through a complex web of personalities and events which build to a dangerous conclusion at the Melbourne Cup ball.
